CJ Zhan-Shahani founded her brand after her pregnancy, enduring bouts of hormonal cystic acne, and failing to find a solution that didn't aggravate her skin condition. Turning to nature for inspiration – using plant-based bioactive's was without doubt, the optimal solution. In formulating this collection, the guiding principle is not about how many actives can cram into a formula, or how high a percentage the formulas can reach. This capsule collection focuses on using key plant-based actives, optimizing their performance with other proven ingredients, and allowing these key actives to take centre stage in a formula.

Mimi Kim is the #weo behind Biodara, which is rooted in her experience with autoimmune disease.

She found change and relief through her products, and they can transform your skin’s health, too.
Monique Hayes founded Semdora, a pre-waxing oil that numbs the skin before waxing and prevents ingrown hairs. As a licensed aesthetician specializing in waxing, "the main concern that I hear from clients (especially the first-timers) is the amount of discomfort and pain they experience during the process." So she took matters into her own hands and developed an anesthetic product fueled by natural plant extracts, not harsh chemicals. You, too, can take matters into your own hands - Semdora Prep Oil is available now for a pain-less waxing experience.

For delicate, sensitive and acne-prone skin pore-clogging ingredients are a no-no. That is why she developed products that are gentle, healing and truly organic, unlike most brands claiming to be organic that only include one or two organic ingredients!
